Illustration Friday—Swell

August 17, 2011

With over 113 years of weather, fire and a few too many Dark ‘n’ Stormies, not to mention sea levels rising and a constant “swell” of mighty waters, this ol’ yacht club is wobbling, slipping off her foundation. Elephants to the rescue—they’re strong, loyal and don’t mind getting their feet wet.

Watercolor sketch for a fundraising campaign to help this ol’ girl once again balance on sticks and stones.

    She draws, she watercolors, and she saves yacht clubs while she’s at it!! Seriously, Penny, you are such an amazing talent. You breathe such life into every piece you do. I would think that an imagined scene like this, utilizing an actual building, would be quite a challenge, but you make it look effortless. I hope the campaign is a success!

    Your humor makes me laugh–the way you see the world is so fun. Ah, you are so inspiring. Your artwork is the best of nearly all things. I mean that, my friend.
